interesting starting with the nsa, especially the nsa and cell phones with our generation, that's a big hot button issue. we are on social media all the time. that was the beginning back in june. over the summer we were expecting our generation, a good job market, trying to get summer internships and jobs. unfortunately, due to obama care, a lot of employers weren't hiring. hours got reduced to 29 hour work weeks. i had friends who weren't allowed to work more than 30 hours a week. slowly but surely starting october 31st, then our generation has to pay higher premiums. it was a perfect storm. our generation said i've had enough. >> sophie, is it the president himself, the way he's presented himself on this and other issues, or is it obama care itself? which is it? or maybe it's both. i don't know. >> i think obama care is really playing into a number of failed policies of this president. and like charlie mentioned, the nsa scandal has really been a huge issue. i know the government really wants to read my text messages of my grandmother but -- >> you don't blame him. not even i blame presid
where we cannot trust any of those different systems, whether the nsa or other intelligence services we put together. so they all have to be dismantled and start over. >> some people think he did a service by exposing a really aggressive nsa surveillance which could filter in on american citizens, not just foreigners. >> true, that's one -- i don't subscribe to that. i don't think it's a service because i think that had he really felt passionate about it, really felt like he was making change, he might have actually gone -- come back and said okay, i'll go on trial, let me have my say because i'm right. instead he ran and hid and who knows what else he's selling out to the russians right now. >> that's a serious suspicion that you have, charge that you have, that the russians, the russian government of vladimir putin, was actually running him as an agent when he committed these whatever he did. stealing all this information. >> exactly. a suspicion, but i would not be surprised if that's where it started. they're that good. >> how tense would you say the espionage relationship between t

the nsa to be more accountable and want oversight, they're worried na if people don't trust these sites that they're going to, they're not going to want to visit google or facebook. this all, of course, came out of nsa contractor edward snowden, him leaking nsa documents, of course, these companies are taking the opportunity saying when the government came to us, we did push back little bit. all of this not sitting well with these companies. >> the fact is they've worked with the nsa. they've had their own controversies regarding privacy. >> you said it. think about google andrea hoo, they're the runs that collect your information. they want to get it for ad dollars. then you got the proof that these companies do, google agreeing last month, settling a $17 million lawsuit. it placed cookies on computers using apple's safari web browser, this happened over a two-year period. google was able to circumvent privacy settings without users knowing or consenting. facebook is a huge offender that every time, did you know every time you vis eight sight that is liked on face boorks you don't have

in place for the rise of the militant groups in the region. >>> the nsa says of course it's not spying on the cell phones of american citizens, but if it happens to be one of the five billion tracked every day, that pledge doesn't apply to you. top secret documents provided by edward snowden says they gather those billions of records from across the road and help them track the movements of certain people and uncover what may be dama dangerous. they say they do, incidently, obtain location information on certain phones. one manager told the post they gather information from tens of millions of americans that travel abroad with their phones every year. >> vice president joe biden continues his excellent adventure arriving in china overnight. biden told the chinese later that the u.s. does not recognize their air defense zone over the east china sea. they also talked about the nuclear issue. no word if he was able to confirm if he sacked his uncle. i spoke with jon huntsman who left that post to seek the republican nomination in 2012. i asked him what he made of biden's diplomatic effort

other people don't. ♪ honestly ♪ i wanna see you be brave ♪ >>> 2016 health care and the nsa. in a wide ranging interview with chris matthews, president obama defended his legacy and told young people they need to get out and vote during the midterms if they want change. the "hardball" special was taped at american university surrounded by students. one of the real moments came when the president was asked to pick between his vice president and former secretary of state. >> vice president joe biden, former secretary of state hillary clinton, compare and contrast. >> not a chance am i going there. here's what i'll say. both hillary and joe would make outstanding presidents. and possess the qualities that are needed to be outstanding presidents. i think joe biden will go down in history as one of the best vice presidents ever. hillary i think will go down as one of the finest secretaries of state that we've ever had and help to transition us away from a deep hole that we were in when we first came into office around the world. >> you can watch that interview in its entirety today at 4:00
that the nsa collects, you know, data on our cell phones and they track our locations via our cell phones. for young voters they don't like the concept of government intruding on your personal life, knowing where you are. i think that's repulsive to them. my guess is that several months worth of continuous revelations along those fronts has damaged the president. >> sam, let me ask you about that. let's stick with the young voters and their growing apparent disapproval of the bristol-mye obama administration and the president himself. do you think, those that a larger part of their disenchantment with this particular president has to do with the fact when they get out of college they won't be able to afford a cell phone because there will be no job for them, because the economic landscape is so bleak for them? >> sure. i totally think that. that's very accurate. you know the thing is one time where the white house was doing well politically this past year was during the government shutdown. it's a weird way to say you're doing well when the entire government stops. i think young voters an
to congress when he said this on march 12. listen. >> does the nsa collect any type of data at all on million attention or hundreds of millions of americans? >> no, sir. >> it does not? >> not wittingly. >> we know that's a lie, too. don't we? >> well, i don't know the details of what he's talking about. i haven't been in the loop on classified information since january of 09. i've been a big supporter of the nsa program. i think it's unfortunate that it got caught up in the irs scandal, which was a scandal. but nsa over the years has donnieman duty for us. i know the senator, i've got a lot of respect for him. i also met jim clapper when he was the air force intelligence officer in korea 25 years ago. so i don't know the details and i'm reluctant to judge it unless i know. >> on a separate note, do you feel like we're in retreat everywhere? you got china, the deal we're cutting in iran. we talked about the ukraine in the green room. what is the over-- what's the main difference in tenor from the administration left and the one now? >> i don't think that barak obama believes in the u.s. as an
to turn some of this group, this 18-29-year-old group, was the nsa issue, that the whole issue of, you know, sort of oversight and messing with my cell phone or my social media or getting access to my private life which this group holds extremely dear is a huge no-no. >> well, that's the first breach. when you get to the point of breach between the president and these most important supporters that he had -- because, remember, to tucker's point, not only do young voters provide votes, but they also provide the patina of cool. they make you look and seem cooler which helps old people, like me, think that you might actually be cool. if young people like you, like i don't really know what instagram does, but i know young people seem to like it, so i'm more prone to say, sounds good. young people made obama look better to older voters. the breach on nsa was so significant because it took away, it shattered that confidence that they had. then when you get into the implementation of the health law, which as tucker points out targets those young voters, it takes from them to give to middle-ag
the status in that region. >>> president obama will propose reforms for the nsa after the allegations of snooping. the president spoke on msnbc "hardball" with chris matthews. >> i'll be proposing some self-restraint on the nsa and to initiate some reforms that can give people more confidence. >> the president said that people at the nsa generally are looking out for the safety of the american people and are not interested in reading e-mails and text messages. >>> good news about unemployment. it is a five-year low. it is down 0.3% from the month before. the economy added 203,000 new jobs. >>> encouraging news about the pilot whales stranded in shallow water in the florida evergrades. officials say most of the whales, at least 35 of them, were able to swim into deeper water on thursday. officials are now tracking them from boats and from the air. good news there. >>> well, prosecutors have decided not to bring charges against heisman trophy favorite jameis winston. the florida state quarterback had been accused of sexual assault, but officials announced they didn't have enough evidenc
accurate reports than what was going on in in bosnia and then with the balkan task force the cia the nsa the joint chiefs of staff were being together. chairing a an event to keep them working together we were sharing information and not according and. the then to make good decisions. i love all these shows like homeland. but real world involves us cia folks what is really going on? in how to get that back to the policy makers. you have to be active not passive consumer of intelligence otherwise they assume you have been choked and not even having a meeting for rwanda. because you are so obsessed with the and other stuff. but i also agree with the panel with the intelligence forces to be in the room to be -- to get more information is as might experience the only time the cia went beyond that was before george tenet was inactive partner in the palestinian intelligence services promoting meat -- peace to the middle east that was the only year in the entire history not one israeli was killed were the leadership of the country changed hands. we live in a world it is easy. with the lasting i
trying to explain to people, the nsa is not listening to french phone calls, not listening to spanish phone calls. i just met with a group from the european union yesterday and there is a bipartisan group in two weeks.els i am leading the delegation. we will have these discussions, because what we do not want to happen is for them to use this -- asx use for excluding an excuse for excluding american companies operating. there would be no reason to do that. candidly, and these are not companies run him a owned, operated we do not plug into them, as you might see in the press, for our american i.t. companies. it just does not happen. we have laws and protection and oversight. i told my allies, we send our intelligence services to the foreign intelligence surveillance court before they a foreign.listen to name another intelligence service in the world that sends them to a third-party court to see if they can listen to the united states. do you think they are having this conversation in china or france or germany or italy? as a matter of fact, the europeans who are screaming the loudest d
clapper, said this. >> does the nsa collect any type of data at all on millions or hundreds of millions of americans? >> no, sir. >> it does not? >> not whitingly. >> not whitingly. >> there are cases where they could inadvertently perhaps. >> touching your forehead. sign. >> right. >> well, secret documents, rather, released by edward snowden revealed that's not true and now the original author of the patriot act says clapper should be fired and prosecuted for lying to congress. in a recent interview jim sensenbrenner says congress relies on accurate information. >>> talk about a rude awakening, a passenger claims he fell asleep on a plane and woke up locked inside. tom wagner was flying united airlines express from louisiana to california. when they landed in houston for a layover, he woke up alone in a cold cabin. >> the lights were out. i was like, what's going on? i thought maybe it was a layover. i'm still on the same plane. don't put the blame on me. i said, i didn't do nothing wrong here. and then they were like, all right, well, try to hush hush, keep it quiet. you know, we'll
the public option, they're upset about the nsa spying. but the key element of president obama's base, young people, are starting to break. so you're starting to see this rift between democrats, and it's also being fueled, i think, by the clinton people who are telling the far left elements, behave. get in line and don't cause us any problems because we already have enough headaches with obamacare and trying to hold on to the senate, don't create more. and that's what you saw with that smackdown editorial in the "wall street journal." jon: the third way group is arguing for a more centrist position, you know, among democrats in washington. right now you've got the most liberal president, arguely, since -- arguably, since fkr or maybe -- fdr. >> and i don't think that they are disappointed, and they saw that to the point where he was reelected to a second term and only the second democrat since franklin delano roosevelt to be reelected along with former president clinton. and with regard to angela -- andrea's point about whether we have disagreements in the party, absolutely have disagreement
to be hassled with it. now they have a real problem. the nsa is going after their servers, going after their networks, so they're all rushing to encrypt the user data. they could have done that a long time ago. >> there is legislation that is pending right now that essentially is echoing what these eight tech giants now say they're pushing. do you see the tim cooks and mark zuckerbergs of the world, do you see them climbing the steps of congress to lobby for this? >> i haven't bumped into them in washington, at least not recently. >> not yet. >> i would like to see that happen, certainly, and we could use their support on some of the privacy bills, but again, i think we need to talk more about the amount of personal information that the companies themselves are collecting. that's the reason that the law enforcement agencies and the intelligence agencies go to them. they have the data. if they didn't collect so much data, they would be a less attractive target for the government agencies. >> mark, thank you. >>> the world of weather. it is messy out there for so many of you. air passeng
, in their balkan task force, the cia, the defense intelligence tea, the nsa, the joint chiefs of staff, regularly working together. see nature to deputies committee that kept all the agencies working together. we were committed to sharing information, not coordinate, to try to reconcile the apparent inconsistencies and then to make good decisions. you now, i love all the shows, homeland and all that stuff. i love that stuff. but the real world involves all the cia folks out there killing themselves to figure out what is really going on and have to get that back to the policymakers. what leon says is right. you have to be attacked, not passive can an arab intelligence. otherwise everyone just assumes your bandwidth has been choked in 1994 and 1995 and you wind up like we were, not even having a meeting about one. because you are so obsessed with all this other stuff. so the obligation of the policymakers is to be aggressive in saying what we need. i also agree with the comments that were made in the piano about the need to have someone representing these intelligence forces in the room when you're
for new measures to give americans more confidence in the organization. the nsa has been rocked by multiple leaks, revealing many surveillance programs. the president did not specify what those reforms could be. >>> a drive-by shooting has killed an american teacher in benghazi. ronald thomas smith was in libya teaching chemistry. his shooting cams days after al qaeda called for libyans to attack u.s. interests. as revenge for october's capture for a terror suspect in tripoli. american authorities are pushing for a vigorous investigation. >>> they are trying to beat a december 13th deadline to hammer out a spending plan and head off yet another government shutdown. congressman paul ryan and senator patty murray are putting together a trillion dollar package for next year and are said to be only a few billion dollars away in savings. >>> a cracked windshield forced a new orleans bound flight to return to orlando. a local tv station says southwest pilots noticed the crack on the outer part of the windshield thursday and turned back. the plane landed safely. the passengers were pla
